Grading

During most six-week periods, two tests will be given.  There will also be graded homework assignments and quizzes and/or special projects.  Grading for each six-week period will be indicated on that six-week schedule. 

As described in the student handbook, letter grades are assigned on a 10-point scale and semester grades are computed as the average of the 3 six-week grades and the semester exam.  Homework will be graded using a rubric we will discuss during the first week of class; you will attach a copy to each assignment you submit.  Tests, quizzes, exams, and projects will all be graded using rubrics which are consistent with the homework rubric.
